I am considering writing my informative paper about womenís roles in the United States military. I am interested in this topic because I have been in the Army National Guard myself for the past four years and I would like to know how military life has changed for women throughout history. Women have gained numerous rights and do many of the same jobs that men do now, but most people know that it hasnít always been that way. I would like to learn about the types of work females did when they were first allowed to join the military, how the division of labor has changed, and the sorts of things that they are still prohibited to do today. I would want to know the time frames in which women were granted different rights and any key people that were involved in the process. I also think it would be interesting to learn more about the perspectives that people have about the shift toward gender equality in the military and the advantages and disadvantages that women have today.
Another topic that I am considering is the effects of different styles of parenting on children. I love children and I think itís fascinating how babies and young kids learn information and form their own personalities and views about the world as they grow into adolescence and adulthood. I would want to know how much of an influence the way a person is raised typically has on who they become later on in life. I could research how various personality traits are believed to develop and the negative impacts that certain styles of parenting can have on children. Since I plan to have kids of my own some day and would like to be the best mother I could be, this information would be not only be interesting to research, but perhaps beneficial for me in the future as well.
When I first started this assignment, I thought I had my mind made up to write about the roles of women in the military. Since I am a female in the military, I think itís important for me to know a little about the role that women played in the organizationís history and how I am affected by the policies that are in place. However, now I realize that the second topic may actually be more interesting for me to write about so I still have a decision to make.
